Well, I guess the obvious this week is that I AM HAPPY my surgery is over & everything went well, & that I am back to feeling 100% normal. I won’t say better than normal—which was kind of the goal of the procedure—because we don’t quite know how that’s going to work out. But the sleepiness & overall ookeyness has worn off, so I’ll give a little cheer. :jump
I AM HAPPY I’m back to exercising, both on the airbike & with the weights. Was a bit hit-or-miss there for a while with the ungodly heat, & then of course I didn’t even bother after the surgery. But I’m back, bay-bee! Did a full hour this morning without wanting to give up even once. Well, okay…maybe once.*g*
I AM HAPPY that—for the time being, at least—the hot, hot, super-hot weather seems to have passed & things are cooling down. Not always; that God-awful humidity rears its ugly head once in a while & makes me want to scream. Or worse. :bloody But I think Fall is definitely on the way.
I AM HAPPY that I managed to finish two books I was reading recently—Kay Hooper’s Blood Ties & Janet Evanovich’s Fearless Fourteen. It takes me so long to get through anything these days that if feels as though I carry the same books around with me forever. Then when I do actually manage to finish one, I feel like happy dancing. LOL :chick
So then I AM HAPPY I’ve started two more—Incubus Dreams by Laurell K. Hamilton & Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich. I’m kicking myself a bit for jumping into to such big ones again so soon. I should really pace myself, read something simpler & less daunting instead. (And there are a few Harlequin Desires & Intrigues I’ve been eager to read.) But both of these titles have been sitting here for a while (especially Dreams) & they caught my eye, so I just did it. Oy. Expect to see them hovering over there in the sidebar for a really, really long time.
There are two more items I AM HAPPY about, but they’re kind of special, so I’m saving them for tomorrow. Stay tuned. :bw
So how about you? What great stuff are you happy about or thankful for this week? Come on, no fair keeping it to yourself—share with the class! :cool

I cannot believe school is starting again so soon! Boo for you, but I’m delighted. Summer vacay throws me off something terrible, & it will be nice to have the neighborhood quiet down a bit again. :beachball

I am happy that I just go through the week. Between a legal problem and banking changes.. Well lets just say all is as well as can be expected.
But i read two new to me authors this week. Loucinda McGary, The Wild Irish Sea and Jean Stone, Beach Roses.. I try to read at least one new author a month, so this month is a bonus already..
Glad you are almost back to normal. What we woman have to go through… It would kill a man for sure.. :ROFL

Mercury is in Retrograde, Kathleen, which is why you’re probably having legal & banking troubles. Merc in Retro & Murphy’s Law are like BFFs…everything that can go wrong will. I am keeping a list & it’s already as long as my arm. And I think we’ve got 2wks more of it. :angrychick
So hang in there. Hopefully once Merc passes, we can all get back to our happy-happy lives. :angelme

Someone once said – “There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.”

YAY!! For feeling better!! And exercising. (I’ve been meaning to do that myself).
I’m happy that I spent the last few days at GeekCon, oops I mean GenCon. It’s a huge gaming convention (I don’t game, unless I can win every single time) and I mean HUGE with geeky guys/gals everywhere. But I went to see what my husband enjoys about it and well, I can’t wait to go again next year!
I’m happy to see my darling little B’girl show off her confidence (for other than gymnastics). She wore a costume to GenCon all weekend and was quite the draw of conventioneers. She also joined in the costume contest (and parade that I thought would never end) and even though she didn’t win (she should have, but she’ll get next year and she is already planning her costume) she did a great job getting up in front of probably a 1000 people or more and doing a little skit that was pretty much made up on the spot. We hadn’t planned on her entering and was actually the very last entry to get in. She did get a ribbon as a Hall Costume Winner (totally made her day)!
The costumes for this convention are AMAZING and if you are in the area around the first weekend in August (Indy) you should just walk the halls and see everyone dressed up. Like someone said, “This is way better than Halloween. 4 days of dressing up compared to just the one for Halloween!”). I will be dressing up next year (Steam Punk! oh yeah!!!)
I’m happy that I got to spend some quality time with my middle son. He is at the age where spending any time with mom is grueling work. We went to the zoo in Indy and had a great time. He’s grown up so much over the summer.
